I just ordered myself one. Not every day that you see one of these for sale.

I want one but I'd have to go through a FFL transfer. :facepalm: Can't wait until I get a Curio and Relics license.

I pulled the trigger on one of these. Hopefully they are nicer than what has come out of SOG.

I'm kind of chuckling a bit.

Here we all are buying them up.

Irritating isn't it. :43:

I got one too. Why the heck not. I guess this will make a nice first C&R rifle purchase.

The last rifle I order from AIM was a hex mosin ex dragoon. It is one of the best nagants I have.

I saw Classic Arms had some of those two last week. They couldn't resist making some stupid Chinese joke that didn't make them look very good. Oh well, I guess most people don't care. Except maybe those Chinese Americans who like guns. And there are quite a few of those...

I've seen some of those before. Unless you're a Mosin hardcore collector or a Korea War reenactor, I don't really see the appeal at that price... But it sure is a nice novelty C&R.

Yea it's a bit irritating but I'll deal with it. As long as we make a thread from a couple of weeks from now showing pictures of all the Type 53 rifles you guys purchased. Lol.

My grandpa was issued one of these "wu shi san hao" rifles so that's why I'm getting one.

That's pretty awesome. Same reason I got into Lebels!
